    Hybrid Pools

    I have an old Ft Wayne pool that I'm trying to install. The walls are fiberglass ~1/4 thick and very flexible the panels are bolted together with a gasket between them and surface is covered with gelcoat. I was told that the bottom 2-4 inches of the panels will be set in the concrete that makes up the bottom. I believe this is a commercial style pool. I'm looking for any info on the pool, dig plans, construction diagrams.
    Any help would be great.

    Nothing commercial about this. Commercial refers to the environment for the most part.

    If there is a liner track, and it doesn't sound like there is on, what the bottom is made of is moot.

    Assuming there is no liner track, while the floor's base is concrete, it will need to be plastered also.

    The pool bottom shape is up to you. Just make sure you meet the current code requirements.

    This is an old school pool construction method. Not many PBs still doing this.
